News from Around the South Jersey Shore

This is a really thoughtful editorial on the gaming industry.

Lock your doors, kids!

Ocean City's doing all it can to keep bringing holiday shoppers to their town.

Speaking of, this is a nice post about Sun Rose Words and Music.

Cape May Stage is having some deals, too.

Duh: Stone Harbor's pricey.

John & Lisa of John & Lisa are Eating in South Jersey welcomed a new addition to their family...on Thanksgiving day. How fitting.

That last call at Henny's was a big one. (Still...what happened to the mermaid??)

One, two, three: awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. (But met at the shore house? Crazy! If I could only have such luck...and on an entirely different note: is it just me or is everyone's Facebook feed exploding with news of marraiges and engagements? Egads, I might drown in them. )

Not surprised about this one.

The headline for this article is "A.C. Casinos Desperately Need Hooters." Um, you go read it. As awkward and horrible as it sounds, I sorta want to see the running of the Hooters girls. Should draw an interesting crowd.

Right after reading that article, I went to "Striper plentiful up and down New Jersey beaches." I did not immediately think of fish.

Thanksgiving in Sea Isle sounded like fun.

Oooo, that Justin Gaynor, getting to the shore while I'm anchored at my desk. I'm sort of saying "Justin" in my head the same way Seinfeld said "Newman."

I missed the Sandy Paws 5k!

But, hey, I did make the Haddon Township Turkey Trot. Not down the shore, I know, but about a mile from home. Look at me go!

I ran a 23:05 race. Not bad -- not my best time, but far from my worst.

It was a pretty hectic holiday weekend, kicked off by my 10 year high school reunion. Oh, and I got a haircut. Folks who saw me asked me to update, so here you go (this is related because it's a picture of me the night of the reunion with my friend, not myself...her name is Jen, too):

I came back to my desk on Monday to hear the awful news about Brian Hickey. His friends have put up a new website, where you can find news, information and the details on the beef and beer that will be held in his honor on Friday, December 12.

Brian was a freelancer like me, and it's been great to see how many people have rallied around him and his amazing wife, Angie. But they could still use all the help they could get. So if you know anyone who might have been in the area the night he was hit, or might want to attend the beef & beer (which I hear was accidentially called the "Beer & Beer" in an upcoming ad, though it would fit), please direct them to that site.

I also learned tonight that Brian was playing a key role in a new shore publication. I'll be helping out in the interim, so stay tuned for an announcement about that shortly.

23:05?! I'd take that. Plus you looked good while running, which, as we all know, is the most important thing.
